On a team with a rising point guard in Rajon Rondo, Stephon Marbury will struggle to thrive. Just wanted to put that out there. His cocky attitude will hurt the Celtics more than he will help them. Although Starbury is still a bit talented, his time is up. While I don't think he will destroy Boston's team chemistry, I don't see him helping at all. At this point, Rondo is much more fitting for the C's.
Players like Dwight Howard are extremely rare. His stats are off the charts, but his dominance when you watch him is overly stunning. If I were starting a team, this is the guy I look to, over Chris Paul. A few guys can stop CP3. No one can stop Superman.
Truth be told, and no offense to Ben Wallace, I don't think the Cleveland Cavaliers will do that much worse without Big Ben. It's the duo of LeBron James and Mo Williams that will win games, as they've done all year.
Dwyane Wade is a monster. If he can slightly improve on defense, this guy is as good as Kobe Bryant. Really... if he were on the Lakers, would they be that much worse? Also, I'm sure D-Wade is thrilled to know he has a diehard fan in err... Lil' Wayne.
Lamar Odom needs to get more love. When he tries, he's solid. With Andrew Bynum out, I see Odom finally getting recognized as being a key player for the Lakers.
